'Speakers for Linn LK100
Hello everybody, have just discovered and joined this forum. Apologies for what is probably a rather vague question, but I shall go ahead and ask it anyway .... I am about to assemble a new hi-fi system to use in our holiday cottage. I am rather tempted by the Quad 99 CD-P (in part, because I could use it as a pre-amp with the PCM output from an old Panasonic HDD/DVD player that I also wish to connect; I will be satisfied to play DVDs through just two channels for now). Now, I have retrieved an old Linn LK100 from the attic, and would like to use that to begin with. (In due course, I am rather keen to audition the Prima Luna Prologue Two, but will resist that particular temptation for the time being.) So I would like to get a pair of stand-mounted 'speakers that would work tolerably well with the LK100, that could also be driven by a valve amplifier at some point in the future and that are a reasonable match (in terms of quality) for the 99 CD-P. Any suggestions? I will obviously want to do some listening with the LK100 before making a purchase. I would certainly consider a B&W pair (either the new 685s or the 805S, depending upon how mean I am feeling), but have no real knowledge of how well suited either would be to a valve amplifier or whether the LK100 could cope. Thanks !
